Last week we asked readers to reject an abstract. There were three responses: by Pretentious Illiterate, Anonymous and Anonymous. The last comment mysteriously disappeared. Although tempted, I cannot award the title of best rejection to that poster. So the winner is (fanfare):
The sentence which clenched the victory was "If so, then you are to be congratulated (as was Socrates by Meno) by being likened to a 'torpedo fish' which stuns its victims." Very pretentious!
I offer my hearty congratulations. I hope you weren't expecting a prize, because we have no money. Subscription, anyone?
